Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls, just east of Telluride, the highest cascade waterfall in Colorado with water falling 365 feet. The hydroelectric power plant at the top of the falls was built in the early 1900's to provide electricity to mining operations in the mountains above Telluride. The building is now registered as a National Historic Landmark, but is on private property.

I almost didn't see that building at the top, dwarfed as it is by the falls - almost reminded me of Norway.

The cascade is beautiful but the location of that house is incredible!!!

I like how the power plant and falls are in sepia tones while the ski and trees are in full color.
